3 Spring Haiku

Pill bugs wet with dew as crawling gray domes mirror green turf, salmon sun. Copter seeds whirling, a squirrel chases paper treasure for her nest. Young cat mock-tweeting, wily sparrows unheeding, paws press on the screen.

Thanks again for the compliment, SKAT. We never seem to have fewer than four cats around the house, so they get into my poems from time to time. --B.B.W.

Thanks for your comment, David. I see your point about the capitals. I write far more sonnets than haiku, and its hard for me to relax with freer forms.
